Staple-Free Staple Pets

Posted in Gadgets, Miniatures on Friday August 3, 2007 by andtheivy

They’re a different version of miniatures. And I totally heart them.

“Paper normally sticks together through the use of external device – usually glue or some kind of bent metal wire. Then some kind of freakin’ GENIUS realized you can stick paper together WITH PAPER!

These staple-free-staplers cut a small flap and a notch in the paper, then it folds the flap back into the notch which keeps the paper stuck together! Pretty slick for a little plastic puppy!

Not only is it environmental, it’s safe – especially for little kid fingers. We’ve got these super cute staple-free staplers in adorable doggie and kitty styles in sickeningly-sweet pastel colors. Perfect for the geekling in your life, or the grown-up geek who’ve incorporated the word “SQUEE!” into their lexicon!

So, kids, next time you’ve got a report due for school, you can hand your assignment in on time while also saying, ‘The dog ate my homework.'”

Not So Very Miniature

Posted in Animals, Miniatures on Friday January 19, 2007 by andtheivy

Kristin sent me this find, and I have to say I actually gasped when I first saw the photo.  Please peruse these sites, as this is a phenomenon that you are DEFINITELY going to want to be a part of.

Methinks that perhaps Big Foot is actually a rabbit.  A big rabbit such as is shown at left. 

Big Rabbits
Even More Big Rabbits

Thanks Kristin!

And I thought I was the only one who had a thing for miniatures. Boy, was I wrong.

Lion Mutilates 42 Midgets in Cambodian Ring-Fight

Posted in Miniatures, News on Tuesday November 7, 2006 by andtheivy

You KNOW this has to be true if it is coming from BBC News.  They never (ever) have false information (or lies).  And you can thank Adam for sending along this sweet gem.

From BBC News:
“The fight was called in only 12 minutes, after which 28 fighters were declared dead, while the other 14 suffered severe injuries including broken bones and lost limbs, rendering them unable to fight back.

“Sihamoni was quoted before the fight stating that he felt since his fighters out-numbered the lion 42 to 1, that they ‘… could out-wit and out-muscle [it].’

“Unfortunately, he was wrong.”

Why, oh why, midgets? 

Complete true story here.

Isn’t it cute? Who could ride on it? How fast is it? Can it jump? Well, that brightened my day.
